Schneider Downs Announces 2012 Data Security Seminar

Risk Advisory/Internal Audit

By Mark Shumaker

Schneider Downs’ Internal Audit and Risk Advisory Services practice shareholder Donald R. Owens will host Data Security 2012 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton on November 7, 2012. This free, four-hour seminar will explore a range of technology, legal, insurance and internal control topics critical to securing your company’s data.

Any business runs on information, much of it confidential. Balancing the security of data and real-time access is difficult, and organizations must be committed to protecting data from the destructive forces of unauthorized users. “Knowing and managing data risk is critical to all organizations,” Don notes.

“I strongly encourage the CIO, CISO, CFO, CAE, risk manager and chief legal counsel of your organization to attend,” Mr. Owens said, “Data security should take utmost precedent in every organization.”

Special guest Corey Collins, FBI special agent, will present “The Ever-Evolving Cyber Threat.” Corey will discuss whether the methods of breaching data security are becoming more technical or if hackers are simply putting a new twist on existing techniques. Corey will discuss what management can expect, and what they should do when their company has become a victim of a data security breach.

Chris Watson, Patrick Cornelius and Spencer Timmel will lead a fast-paced data security roundtable, “Technology, Legal and Insurance Roundtable.” These three experts will discuss current legal requirements and protective controls from a technology, insurance and legal perspective:

• As a member of Schneider Downs’ Internal Audit and Risk Advisory Services practice, Christopher Watson, MBA, CISA, CRISC, provides Technology Audit, Technology Consulting, Sarbanes-Oxley, Business Continuity Planning, SAS 70/SSAE16, Risk Management and Information Security services.

Patrick D. Cornelius, Partner with Squire Sanders, advises clients on a broad range of domestic and international business matters including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate governance and compliance, including data privacy and security issues. Pat co-chairs the Squire Sanders Global Compliance effort, through which the firm advises clients in designing and drafting programs, policies, procedures, agreements and other documents needed to have an effective compliance program. A significant portion of this work involves advising on laws impacting the security and use of personal data.

He provides consultation, support and risk transfer options to clients for their data security exposures.
